Service Features

For schools connected to our broadband service, as a NEN (National Education Network) connected school, you benefit from resources created by other regions around the UK. Some of these resources are restricted to schools who purchase our Broadband and Online Services Bundle and are not available outside school:

The NEN – National Education Network Resources

One of the membership benefits of NEN is the access to high quality teaching and learning resources.

Some examples of the excellent resources include:

All have been developed and/or funded by members of NEN and, in some cases, charities or key partner organisations have been involved.

Also available in the resources section of the NEN website are useful links for school staff/leaders, to resources from a range of organisations, covering issues such as online safety, bullying, citizenship and pupil wellbeing.

Many resources are open access for anyone to use. Others, marked ‘NEN only’, are for schools where the local authority is a member of the "NEN - the Education Network". These resources must be accessed from within your school network to validate the license.
